Hurt Someone’s Feelings? Make Amends, DealDash

DealDash

Making amends when you hurt someone’s feelings is very important. Let DealDash help guide you through the process.

Accidentally hurting someone’s feelings is, unfortunately, just a part of life. However, how you deal with these accidents can predict if you will be able to keep your relationship with them or have to move on. Hopefully, with a little help from DealDash, you will be able to repair all of your relationships when you accidentally offend or hurt someone’s feelings. Read on for more information.

What Did You Do?

Before you can make amends for whatever it was that you’ve done, you need to take a close look at what you said or did. Hurting someone’s feelings accidentally can be a very embarrassing feeling, which can lead to putting off apologizing. Trust me, it will just get harder the longer you wait to apologize, so it’s best to get it out of the way. After you’ve figured out exactly what it was that you said or did, then it’s time to figure out how to make it right. Sometimes saying sorry just isn’t enough.

How Does the Other Person Feel?

If you’re not exactly sure how to apologize, then just try to put yourself in the other person’s shoes. Try to think like they might think, and feel what they might feel. If you try to look at things from the other person’s point of view it might become easier to figure out exactly what you need to say or do to make things better between you.

Keep Things Simple

There’s no need to over-complicate things. If you’ve wronged someone, then it’s time to apologize. Depending on what exactly it was that you’ve done to elicit their hurt feelings, your apology might need to be accompanied by some actions. If you are able to put yourself in the other person’s shoes, then you’ll know what you have to do! Have a serious face-to-face conversation where you admit what you did wrong, and have a plan to fix it. Make sure that the apology is completely sincere and heartfelt.

If the person isn’t ready to forgive you, please take the news gracefully. In time they might be ready to forgive, and if you take their rejection gracefully, they will remember that in the future. Good luck, you can do it, I believe in you.

Happy Valentine’s Day from DealDash! Here are some ways to show your love to the people around you.

Get Your Co-Workers Coffee

On your way in tonight, why not grab your co-workers some coffee? If you work in a large office, you could just stop by Dunkin’ Donuts and get a “Box of Joe,” and some of the fixin’s such as cream, sugar, Spenda, napkins, and stirrers. It would absolutely make their day, and feel very kindly towards you indeed.

Pick your Husband/Wife/Partner Up Lunch

It would also bring joy to a few people who you semi-know such as your UPS man, your favorite postal worker, or other person that you see on a semi-regular basis.

Get Your Kids or Grandkids Chocolate

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just for your Husband/Wife/Partner – why not show some love to your kids as well? Get them some chocolate, or even make them up a little gift basket to show them how much you love and care about them this Valentine’s Day.

DealDash Thinks About Presents

Image result for pile of presents

Even though it’s not even Halloween yet Christmas decorations are already decorating the shelves of the local stores. I guess it’s not to early to start thinking about Christmas presents…

Do you have any idea yet what you are planning to get for your kids, your mom, your friend? Well, if you start shopping (and winning!) now on DealDash you will be able to get everyone taken care of, presents wrapped, and ready to go before Christmas is here. And when you think about it like that, it’s actually a present to yourself! Shopping early means no waiting in long lines, no last-minute splurges, and no guilt that you didn’t think of the perfect present. It sounds like it’s time to get shopping. Here are a few ideas that you might want to think about in terms of gifting this year…

Bluetooth headphones – Bluetooth headphones are a great gift for many people. They are perfect for people who love to exercise, of course, but they are also great for the people on your list who love to try out the latest gadgets. Even your mom or grandma might like bluetooth headphones for doing gardening or yard work outside, or even in the kitchen for when they are cooking and can’t pick up the phone when someone calls. They are also great for teenagers and kids as well – but not kids that are too young, you don’t want them getting lost.

Back massager- A back massager is the perfect gift for just about anyone over the age of 30. You can go cheaper with a non-electronic one, they actually have some really nice ones at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Or if you’re feeling spendy you can get a much nicer one that has electronic rollers, heat, and various speeds and firmness. I personally have both types of mechanical and non-mechanical, and I can say that both are great!

Decorative clock –  A decorative clock is a nice present for someone who you want to give a gift to, but you aren’t very close, or you just have no idea what they need or like. Almost everyone could use a decorative clock, whether they plan on putting it somewhere on display such as the mantle, or just to use as a decoration in their guest room. It’s a completely non-offensive, useful, and fun item that would be a nice present for an aunt that you don’t see that often, or a neighbor that you aren’t sure of their hobbies or interests.

Kitchen gadget – If you’re in a quandary of what to get someone but you know that they enjoy cooking, how about a kitchen gadget? You could get them a nice ceramic knife, a beautiful tea kettle, or a fun set of dessert plates. The choices are practically endless when you are choosing a fun kitchen gadget.

I hope that this article has gotten you thinking about some gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season. DealDash has great gifts for people of all ages and interests, including bluetooth headphones, kitchen gadgets, and gift cards. DealDash is the ultimate in shopping entertainment.

Birthdays Are More Fun With DealDash

Do you have a friend, child, or other loved one that is having a birthday soon? Here are a few tips to make their day great!

A birthday is that one special time per year where you are the star! Make your family and friends feel extra special on their birthday with these simple and fun ideas. You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to make someone’s birthday extra special.

Everyone likes cake on their birthday, but how about making your loved one a different (or extra!) treat this year? Just because we have a regular birthday cake doesn’t mean that we can also have the birthday person’s favorite dessert as well. This year on her birthday my daughter wanted brownies. So instead of getting a big cake like we usually do, we got a small cake, and baked brownies together as well. Instead of having a big slice of cake we had little slices of cake and little brownie squares. Some other delicious birthday treat ideas include cookies, cheesecake, and apple pie.

Just because your family member is over 12 years old doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve a party hat. Make them a hat out of paper, or buy them a silly hat at the dollar store. You’re allowed to be as silly as you like on your birthday, whether you’re 8 or 88! Other fun hat ideas include princess/prince crown, cowboy hat, or big sombrero.

Don’t forget the card! Now that just about every one of every age has email, I have noticed that receiving paper cards are getting more and more scarce by the year. I don’t know about you, but personally I save paper cards. It’s nice to look back a few years from now and see all of the well-wishes and cute cards that people picked out. You can get a card at the store, make a card with paper and markers, or if you are still stuck on the computer, how about making a card and printing it out? A paper card in the hand just feels so much more special than an email does.

Last but not least, why don’t you get them a little present? You can find some great gift ideas and fun presents on DealDash. DealDash has items for people of all ages and stages of life. Just click right here and you can go browse on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Crafts: Room Sprays

Would you like your home to smell amazing, but you have pets or little kids that make it smell not so great? Are those pets and children also the reason why you don’t want to use too many chemicals in your home? Try making your own room spray.

Making your own room spray for your home is really very simple. You can use many different essential oils to make an almost endless variety of scents. I’ll give you a basic recipe to get started, you only need a few things and you will be on your way to a great smelling home with no harsh and irritating chemicals.

Materials:

  • Small spray bottle – they have these in the travel section at Target and many other stores. Glass or plastic is fine.
  • Witch hazel. You can also use vodka, but why waste vodka?
  • Distilled water
  • Mason jar or other similar jar with a lid
  • Small funnel
  • Essential oil(s) of your choice

Directions:

  1. Add 2 ounces of witch hazel to your mason jar.
  2. Add your essential oil(s) to the witch hazel. Put 20 drops of any of your oils.
  3. Shake, shake, shake!
  4. Using your tiny funnel, pour the mixture into your spray bottle. Add an additional 2 ounces of distilled water.
  5. Add a label outlining how many drops of which essentials oils are inside in case you would like to make the same mixture again.
  6. Spray, then breathe in the nice fresh scent of your home.

If you are having trouble figuring out which essential oils to use in your room spray, here are a few ideas:

  • Citrus & Mint –
  • 8 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 12 drops wild orange essential oil

 

  • Freshening and Deodorizing-
  • 4 drops tea tree oil
  • 8 drops lemon essential oil
  • 8 drops eucalyptus essential oil

 

  • Relaxing in Bed-
  • 8 drops lavender
  • 12 drops vanilla

If you aren’t sure you are going to like the scents that you are mixing up or not, just add 1 drop of each of the oils at first, and if you aren’t crazy about the scent that it makes when it’s mixed together then just finish off the 20 drops with the scent that you like better. It won’t be as exciting a mixture, but it will avoid having to throw out your mixture, as 1 drop of an oil with 19 drops of another oil will smell almost 100% like the 19 drops, with just the slightest hint of the 1 drop’s scent.

I hope that this article has gotten you thinking about what sorts of yummy scents that you can make into room sprays for your home. If you haven’t yet purchased any essential oils, they are available at a great price from both Target and Wal*Mart. Conveniently, DealDash offers gift cards for both Target and Wal*Mart for auction. Go ahead and check out DealDash’s Gift Card category for Target and Wal*Mart gift cards. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

  • 3 yds ribbon

  • 10 – 1 subject notebooks

Even if the gift is cheap and also symbolic it truly needs to mean something for that person. It’s rarely about how much you spend and is more often than not about the meaning behind the gift.

Don’t be an egoist, however, think of a gift on your own first, asking on yourself what would kind of gifts would certainly you like to receive.
